KyotoLefty (7433) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle in Strassbourg, 2006. Called Biere Aromatisee a l’orange, and it sure was. Amber color. Basically a cheap beer, with a little more malt character than their pils, but still not near enough. Hopping was not too bad. There was a ton of orange in there, certainly some kind of syrup as it was very sweet and caramelly. It was drinkable, but basically cheap alcopop. Slightly interesting, but forgettable.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2008
Medium offwhite head. Copper body with light carbonation. Fruity, lemony aroma with notes of lime. Sweetish fruity lemony taste, again with a kind of lime background. Clean, medium mouthfeel. Dry malty caramelly aftertaste dominated by the same lemon/lime character. Not terribly complex, and extremely unusual, but quite OK. This is really the beer Corona should have been. What the association with Christmas could possibly be I really couldn’t say. (0.65l bottle from the wine monopoly.)

ogivlado (6287) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 13, 2008

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Deep, dark golden beer with a prototypical lager head. Drinks with a rich, clean, malty goodness. There’s a hint of some viscous alcohol, but not that much. Thicker and "gooder" than your standard lagers, but built on that baseline. (#5359, 12/11/2013)

Sigmund (5695) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2007
650 ml green glass bottle, entirely covered in very "christmasy" plastic foil. Courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Also available in Norway at Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. ABV is 5.8%. Clear and deep golden colour, large and lasting head. Fruity and spicy aroma with notes of farm kitchen, quite nice. The flavour has some of the "spritziness" of other bières-de-garde, but is sweeter, with caramel. Artificial "aroma" (whatever that may be) has been added, hmmm ... That is probably what I get some candy / pear drops notes from. Moderate hops in the finish. Not your typical Christmas beer, but drinkable.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2007
Big 650ml bottle from the cave, £5:99, burned man! Aroma is pale lager malts, spice, but almost completly dominated by orange. Taste is again orange, thin marmalade sweetness, all spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, alround on the sweetside. It poured with a massive sparkling head which deminished in a few second then stood looking dead for the rest of the time.
